How To Effectively Organize Formal Family Portraits

Rancho Cucamonga Maternity Session: Bills Family

Ahhh!  Young love for this beautiful Redlands engagement session.  We started out at the beautiful Prospect Park, one of my favorites.  Then, because of all this rain that we have received in Southern California this winter, flowers are blooming like crazy.  One of those spots was new Crafton College in Yucaipa.  Alex and Sadie wanted […]

Redlands Engagement Session: Alex and Sadie

A Laguna Beach Engagement Session is always a good idea!  It was a busy Saturday at my favorite beach in Laguna.  It was COLD, I was super confused why there were so many people were on the beach.  But then I remembered how rainy and dreary it has been for about 2 months, it’s been […]
